APP WATCH: Virgin Media TiVo for Android

Got a Virgin Media TiVo box? You need the Virgin Media TiVo for Android app then. It's just been launched, but only for Android phones, although an iPhone version is said to be following 'soon'.

It's not a million miles away from the Sky+ app, if you happen to be familiar with that. Just choose your region and your package (M, L or XL) and you get to see what is available to view, both now and next. You can also tap a channel to see what's on the whole day or week. If you have favourite channels, you can customise your guide to show those channels instead of the whole rundown. Just tap on a channel to show or hide.

Of course, the headline feature is the ability to record wherever you are. Go to Remote Record and you can set up recordings through your mobile phone - log in, pick a show and press record. It will be waiting for you when you finally get home.

That iPhone version should be here in no time at all, with an iPad TiVo app also in the pipeline. Now all you need to worry about is finding time to watch all this TV.
